On September 13, in the year of our Lord, 2022, Martha Gaide (Trinka) died quietly at home surrounded by her loving family.

Martha was married to the late Frank A Gaide. Devoted mother to the late Lynda & Tad Donahue, Frank Gaide, Robert & Kathleen Gaide, Marsha Gaide, the late Peter Gaide and Deborah & the late Thomas Healey. Caring Grandmother to Ashley & Lindsay Donahue, Terrence & Peggy Gaide, Kathleen & Steve Mahan, Tara & John Corey, Mary Kate Gaide, Matt & Alicia Gaide and Abigail, Louise & Hannah Healey. She was especially thankful for her great grandchildren: Tighe & Ailis Gaide, Ryan & Madi Mahan, Pepper Corey and Amelia, Starla & Piper Gaide, and her daughter-in-law, Kathleen White. Martha greatly missed the company of her late sister, Julie Gailinas and her late husband Paul, and her sister-in-law, the late Frances Savicki and Joseph Savicki. She cherished having so many wonderful nephews and nieces.

A lifelong resident of South Boston, Martha lovingly known as Marty, cherished her hometown and reveled in all the splendor it provided her, her family, and friends. She and her late husband were lifelong members of the South Boston Yacht Club. She was a dedicated leader for the local Girl Scouts. Following a natural desire to help others in need, Marty managed the Bayside Nursing Home for three decades before retiring and supported many Veteran Organizations. She was extremely proud of and faithful to the needs of her parish, Saint Brigid Church -- But Marty was most satisfied in life by ever-so-quietly and humbly serving her family and friends as a loving confidant and advocate for their every need.

Our Mom will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by her family and friends.
